What our clients have to say …
You have been the most professional of all the X-Ray Shielding companies I have dealt with.
Through out all the Companies we work with “our Researchers” are “tickled” with your work at MarShield….GREAT JOB!
The product quality, delivery, and customer care exceeds expectations and meets our radiation safety needs completely. We are very satisfied and happy. Thank you Mr. Cory Aitken and MarShield. We wish you the best in business.
Cory is very good. Quoted quickly, handled my several changes, answered all of my questions and confirmed my PO without delay.
The purchase went very smoothly, I will be coming back for more business in the future. Thank you.
Like the easy way salesmen accommodate your needs don’t have a lot of hoops to jump through to get what you need and move on.
Cory, We have just received the lead containers. We are extremely happy with them and the quick turn around time. I look forward to doing business with your company in the future.
The communication between our parties exceeded our expectations and really made the project move as well as it possibly could. During every phase of this challenge, the lead pouring and subsequent minor repair seemed to be the smallest hurdle to endure, with great help from your end. Mars was able to accommodate us on short notice, and with the promptness of your replies to our numerous questions, you really helped our time management on achieving our production schedules. I hope to work again with James Izzard (Plant Manager) and Dave Holden (MarShield, Sales Manager) in the not-so-distant future on another challenging, yet rewarding, project.
Dave Holden has been a tremendous help in the creation of the Radiation Shielding Enclosure. Dave took our original design and modified the design to meet our needs and save us a great deal of money. The Radiation Shielding Enclosure workmanship and quality have meet our specification. Once Dave Holden received the order the enclosure was built and delivered in less than a month. I would recommend MarShield for any project related to radiation shielding. Thank you MarShield and Dave Holden for the safe guarding of the employees of our NDI Lab.
I met some of the staff from MarShield during the Canadian Radiation Protection Association annual conference. The representatives were highly professional, and extremely knowledgeable about their various products. The followup after the conference was rapid, and I received information and requested products right away. I am pleased with the lead shielding and the subsequent information provided with the products. A no hassle company to deal with.
Selog Medical Contractors Ltd
Two years ago, Mars Metal became our main supplier of lead sheeting. The product, of finest quality arrives on site as quoted, no matter where in Canada.
ATS came to MarShield to get a quote on a lead fill we needed to have done for a build to print project that we were quoting. Not only did I receive a quick response from them, but they were also extremely helpful in making sure that what was quoted was what we needed. Even more impressive was that for our delivery date to be met they had to call in people to do it during their summer shutdown, and at no additional cost to us. David Holden and his crew have gone above and beyond my expectations on the quality of work and service. Everyone at ATS has been very impressed with the guidance and service they have provided us.
A.G GarCon Building Group Limited
This was our first time dealing with MarShield and we were impressed by their product knowledge, timely quote response, their large lead sheet inventory and their overall service.
I had contacted several other Companies looking for a quote to no avail! Except for your guys at MarShield you responded right away with a fast quote at a great price. Thank you for your great service.
I will be recommending you to my friends in the medical community and you will be the preferred vendor for our business going forward. We plan on more expansions over the next few years. You should know that you do a great job and I hope that the product we receive is as great as your service !
I’d like to just start with how pleased I am with the level of service and responsiveness from the MarShield team, especially Matt. I feel his efforts were instrumental in helping us reach our extremely aggressive deadlines, and his professionalism throughout our business transaction was outstanding.
Paul J. Smith
Outstanding!!! But I’ve learned to expect that from you and Mars Metal. Thanks so much.
I wanted to send my thanks to your team for the expedited shipment and phenomenal service provided in delivering lead lined gyprock to my site in St John’s. I initially sourced gyprock locally within the Province and was told by suppliers that my timeline could not be met. Your team was able to meet my tight schedule requirement, at a reasonable price, which has allowed my project to proceed without delay or disruption to patient care. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make that happen.
I would like to thank you for the prompt delivery and attention to the needs of our last shipment. We greatly appreciate the attention and service your company and Cory Aitken provided us.
We recently purchased lead rooms from Mars Metal and given the efforts of your company and Dave Hunter specifically we were able to pull in our schedule by over three weeks. When we placed the order I told Dave that I was going to “put the screws” to him to deliver early as we are working a huge transfer project and need to pull in every week, day, and hour that we can. Mars Metal came through and shipped two weeks early.
